  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: lovin’ new STEM based teen DIY web series by #GoldieBlox

some people think STEM is really boring.  but that’s because they are learning by reading about STEM. STEM is an action sport.  it’s about doing.  you’ve got to get in there and play. 

that’s why the new web diy series ‘Hack along with Goldie Blox’  is so great. Every Friday a new episode is gonna come out with fun fixes that any girl with a can do attitude can make themselves.

  • Comments Off on Hot off the press: shout out to the philly mom who paid 25K for her son’s prom party

i give a huge congrats to mom from philly who spent more than $25,000 for her son to have a dubai themed prom party.  by now i’m sure you have heard about this situation , since IG and youtube has been aswirl about it.  most of the comments are shock and horror that someone would spend that much money on a prom. someone from anywhere but not a mom who by her own accounts didn’t have that type of money. but i see this as genius…

i believe philly mom, aka saudia shuler, had a master plan.   my guess is that she really threw the party as a kick off for her new party planning business.  how brilliant a marketing plan would that be!  she has thousands of people sharing video and photos of her event.  news and sites around the world are talking about her idea.  it’s clear the woman is super talented. as it took so much creativity and time management to plan something of that magnitude.   i can’t imagine other people not wanting to hire her. if this was her thought process and i really hope it was…she took a risk indeed but potentially a risk that may pay off BIG

  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: Scenarios USA Teen Films are a must see

scenarios-e1496434652301.jpgi had the pleasure last summer of being asked to serve on the committee to select the best script for the next film line up for scenarios USA.  scenarios USA is a non profit organization which take ideas written by teens and helps them produce hollywood quality short films. in fact the films of often made by well known award winning directors.  the films are then used as part of curriculum in schools to help students learn how to address serious issues they face but are often not discussed in school or with family.  the scripts were soo good, it was very hard to pick.  but when we did, we were all excited to see what was to come.  two teen girls won the best scripts and we are so proud of them.

fast forward one year later and even though i knew the scripts were good, i cannot believe the talent and creativity of these teen girls.   they both created films that are intense, real and compelling.   

for the month of June you can check out the films on youtube. 

take a look at the short film cut in half.  written by the amazing leen shumman and directed by famed susan seidelman.
